Movie Plot

Ranjeet Verma (Raj Babbar) is the lawyer and legal counsel for a criminal named Veljibhai Soda (Paresh Rawal). Ravi Verma (Sanjay Dutt) is the younger brother of Ranjeet. He is, however, suffering from a Brain Tumor. Since Ranjeet was associated with Veljibhai, Ravi got involved with him and his illegal activities.

Veljibhai has an evil eye on a piece of land owned by Ustad Ali Mohammed (Alok Nath), who wants to make children park over it. Veljibhai asks Ravi (Sanjay Dutt) to throw Ali out of his house. However, during this, Ravi falls on the floor and faints. Ali takes him to the hospital and takes good care of him. When Ravi gains consciousness, he realizes his mistake and wants to save Ali's land at any cost.

Veljibhai, knowing the entire story, sends his goons to kill Ali (Alok Nath). However, in the meantime, Ali hands over the ownership of the land, in question, to Ravi.

Veljibhai asks Ravi to hand over the deed papers in ransom for his brother, Ranjeet. Ravi hands over the agreement papers to Veljibhai but Ranjeet tries to get the deed back and gets killed by Veljibhai.

Ravi vows to shatter Veljibhai, but the latter is clever enough to kidnap Rita (Amrita Singh), the love interest of Ravi. What happens after that is the rest of the story of Kabzaa (1988).
